London campus

In 2012, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was the home of the celebrated London Olympic and Paralympic Games. Now the Park is one of the most exciting new developments in London, Here East – and Loughborough University is part of it.

Loughborough University London is an inspiring postgraduate campus that enhances our existing world-class partnerships and excellence in research, to deliver an industry-focused learning experience that is second to none.

The campus is based in the former press and broadcast centres at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and currently offers 25 full and part-time master's programmes.


Our teaching and learning offers academic excellence in a broad range of disciplines, from sport and exercise science to engineering, business and the arts, and was recently awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

Our renowned student experience gives every student the opportunity they need to achieve their full potential. Our strong connections to industry boost these opportunities by providing students with access to placements. They also form the backbone of our enterprising outlook which is helping business to innovate, expand and improve performance.

Our approach to creating an exceptional student experience and delivering the highest level of teaching and learning is quite simple; we put our students at the heart of everything we do. The positive impact of this approach was highlighted in the National Student Survey 2017 results, when Loughborough was ranked the top mainstream university in England for overall satisfaction.

Our outstanding research is generating globally important work that is driven by society’s need for solutions to real-life issues, making it not only cutting-edge, but relevant too.

Our reputation for sporting excellence, which spans performance, facilities, expertise and working partnerships, confirms our position as the number one university for sport. 

Our superb 440 acre single-site campus is the University’s most glorious asset, offering great facilities for students, staff and visitors to the University.

Our Students' Union is one of the very best in the country and is one of the only unions to be owned and managed by students.
